Sharp was the first company to remove the top bezels completely & that happened in 2015. Then we saw Xiaomi doing that but in a more refined way in the Mi Mix & later with the Essential Phone, we got the Notch. That trend literally exploded into Apple’s iPhone X but in this case, a bigger & uglier Notch and now many Android Manufacturers are walking in the Apple way. The latest addition to this list is going to be the Sharp Aquos S3.
Sharp will unveil the Aquos S3 on 28th March & as you can see in the image above, it’ll equip a Notch. The Sharp Aquos S2 & the recently announced S3 Lite do have Notches as well but, those are similar to the Essential Phone. The upcoming Aquos S3 will have an iPhone X like Notch.

The Sharp Aquos S3 is expected to be equipped with a 6 inch Display with a 91% screen-to-body ratio. The SOC is suspected to be a Snapdragon 630 (again) & there may also be 4GB/6GB RAM options alongside 64GB/128GB Internal Memory options.
The dual rear cameras on the back may spot 12MP & 13MP sensors respectively & there might be a 16MP selfie shooter on the Front. There might be a 3100 mAh Battery to keep things charged up.
What we think about the iPhone X like Notch is that, this is one of the rare situations where a Trend inventor tries to follow the Market leaders instead of improving on their own trend. However, it’s upto you if you like or do not like this fact.
